The 2014-15 Torocuervo season started this weekend in Valdezcaray, La Rioja, Spain. So here we are on Friday night in basecamp salivating like Pavlov’s dogs as we fix kit, wax skis and try on bigger boots – some of us have bigger feet this year!!
The good news is there is snow in Valdezcaray. The bad news is that it’s been a wet weekend, but hey the season is up and running. And if you can telemark in wet snow you can telemark in anything. This weekend is, it seems to me, as much about seeing old friends again and coaching those muscles back into form.
